Baked Ham


Baked Ham

1/2 fully-cooked ham, about 8-10 pounds.

Glaze

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup lemon juice

1 cup orange or pineapple juice

2 tablespoons cloves (omit if using spiral cut ham)

Remove the ham from the refrigerator a couple of hours before baking so that it can get closer to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 325°F. Place ham, fattier side up, in a roasting pan.

Place the cloves two inches apart around the top and sides of the ham.

Prepare glaze by stirring all ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Cook a few minutes on moderate heat, until honey and brown sugar are dissolved and all ingredients are well combined.

Pour glaze all over ham and baste a couple of times. Cover and bake for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Baste the ham a few times during cooking. Remove from the oven and baste again. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.
